Following last weekend’s win in Cardiff, scans for their respective knee injuries have confirmed that both Ian Keatley and Francis Saili sustained knee ligament sprains.
A sprain to his posterior cruciate ligament saw Keatley leave the field on 21 minutes with Saili later picking up a collateral ligament sprain. Both players have commenced rehab with the Munster medical team and are currently unavailable for selection. Definitive timelines have yet to be decided for their return to play.
Meanwhile Jean Kleyn (neck), James Cronin (finger), Alex Wootton (shoulder), Sean McCarthy (knee) and Mike Sherry (back) continue their respective rehab programmes with Cronin and Wootton expected to be available for selection in the coming weeks.
